HTML and FORM packages for Laravel 5

  • Answered
Hi, I recently installed Laravel 5 on my site and am trying to run my existing code that was created for Laravel 4. Unfortunately, Laravel 5 doesn't ship with the HTML or Form package so most of my pages are broken. I found some info below on how to fix the issue but it requires me to do a composer update. How can I do that on a shared server? Many thanks!

Steps:
1) Add a "illuminate/html": "5.0*@dev" to the "require" section of your composer.json
2) Do a composer update
3) Add the 'Illuminate\Html\HtmlServiceProvider' to the providers array in config/app.php
4) Add 'HTML' => 'Illuminate\Html\HtmlFacade' to the aliases array in config/app.php

Hello, Thank you for your question on Laravel and Composer. Unfortunately adding/updating Composer is not something that is possible on our shared environment as it will span the entire server affecting all customers. This is something that can be done via VPS and Dedicated server plans if upgrading is within your range of interest. Kindest Regards, Scott M
